The Wall Street Journal reports the CEO of PC chipmaker Intel Paul Otellini had a startling confession:He spends an hour a weekend removing spyware from his daughter's computer. And when further pressed about whether a mainstream computer user in search of immediate safety from security woes ought to buy Apple Computer Inc.'s Macintosh instead of a Wintel PC, he said, "If you want to fix it tomorrow, maybe you should buy something else."
When it comes to peace of mind, Apple Mac is an alternative you might want to consider. I was a mac user since April untill my G4 iMac harddrive failed and I got to switch "camp" to Window platform. As to why I go back to Window over a Mac this time round, that another story...
My weekly routine now include scanning for spyware, running virus scan on my IBM Thinkpad notebook...something I do not even have to do when I was using my Mac.
That peace of mind is something I sorely missed.
